Two-time FringeNYC award winners PL115 (2005 Overall Excellence and 2006 Best Set Design) return in 2008 with a story of wartime violence on the home-front. Interweaving Hector's last day home from the Trojan War with the home-leave of an American Marine, this comedic tragedy tells a story of ambient violence, failed connections, hopelessness, and happy-endings.
